Coherent fiber-optic bundles offer opportunities for application of state-of-the-art electro-optic imaging techniques to the sighting and fire- control problem. However, conventional fiber-optics are limited in this application by their high attenuation coefficients up to 2000 dBkm. Fused silica fiber with its low attenuation 1-50 dBkm, offers substantial improvement.
